A fun shooting environment with range safety officers on staff


One of the very important roles of Range operation is the role of RAO. This is the person who greets shooters when they first enter the range, handles the paperwork and collects the fees associated for their activity. The RAO collects information to be passed on to the Range Safety Officers before that shooter is assigned to the Main Range or a Shooting Bay. Why is this so important?

The RAO is usually the first person a visitor to the Range will speak to. They must be familiar with Range Rules, and make sure the visitors have eye and ear protection and targets. RAOs operate the Point of Sale system (cash drawer) and follow the office procedures.

Just two days a month, four to five hours each day running the range office, and you get all of the benefits of an Annual Member, while the Membership fee is waived. Since RSOs often double and do both the RSO and RAO duties. For every RAO we get qualified to volunteer two days a month, it often frees up another RSO to function as an RSO, not an RAO.

There will be periodic classes to teach Office Procedures to those interested in becoming an RAO. If this is something that might interest you, just send an email to 

Red Cliffs Email and request more information. You may also download this RAO Application and complete it, email it to Red Cliffs Email or bring it by the office the next time you visit the range.
